March book list - Drug Month - What a Bust

 So, it turns out that not only are people on drugs boring to the rest of the world so too are books about people taking drugs. The idea was to endeavour to complete a themed month of books and completed it was but, as one of the least interesting book months of the year.
The books were:
The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (written during a drug era)
The Electric Kool-Aide Acid Test
Confessions of an English Opium Eater
Brave New World

Junky was at least interesting, as was Andy Warhol and as a very late comer to Brave New World it is simply incredible but, the others were just so monotonous and repetitive. So the required reading ended on a sour note but, has picked up since then.
A few random books were required to lighten the mood beginning with The Virgin and the Gipsy bu D.H. Laurence and continuing on with Secrets of a Fashion Therapist by Betty Halbreich. Both books are wonderful and there will be more random books before the month is out. Stay tuned...
